...were moved by the Holy Spirit

"...knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit." (2 Pe 1:20-21) The Holy Spirit moved holy men to record God's holy Word which when received and lived, produces a holy people!

A Good Witness

For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you (1Pe 4:3-4) Our manner of life is noticed, so let us live for Jesus!

To Be Aware of His Presence...

In Matthew 28:20 Jesus says, "Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." In Hebrews 13:5 God says, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Jesus tells His disciples in John 14:18, "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." One of Jesus' names, Emmanuel, means "God with us." We don't need to ask God to be with us if we are members of His family. Instead, we need to pray that we will be aware of His presence, that we will be confident because of it.
